The Yankees and Mets haven't both been at home at the same time ever?  Because that would be four teams playing right there...

Yeah I think subby means 3 home teams.  Which is cool, except that I don't get to actually go to the game. Or stream it. Legally anyway.

Actually 1915.

The Federal League is retroactively recognized as having been a major league by MLB, and Buffalo's franchise in the Federal League folded after the 1915 season.

Buffalo also had a National League team in the late 19th Century.

I've made it a goal to tailgate once before a Bills game because from the footage I've seen, it looks pretty nuts.

Nothing else to do but get drunk and watch the Bills.

That's not fair.

The Sabres put out a good team to watch once every 20 years or so.

Newspaper editors loved every time he signed a new contract.  I don't know if it was for his whole career, but I know at one point he didn't have an agent so someone got to do the new contract article and included the phrase "Satan, who represented himself in negotiations."

Went to UB many moons ago. Can confirm.

The most important stat that will come out of these games, will be the amount of Buffalo wings that the teams will consume.

That meme is totally false.

Nobody comes to Buffalo for the culture.

It's too bad that New Jersey never picked him up.

It's my personal opinion that ever NHL MLS, NBA & MLB team should have teams in all the markets each league is currently in.

Think about it....

Colleague from grad school, UB grad, lived with I think a relative or was just renting from them.  Dropped by one day to pick her up and was waiting inside and they had a couple of cutouts used to fill in the crowd for those screens.
